Oregon (KTNV) -- An Oregon man spent nearly an hour trapped inside a pickup truck as it dangled from an overpass Saturday.

Police said alcohol may have been involved in the crash.

Rescue crews were able to use a basket to get the 38-year-old driver out before taking him to the hospital.

The fire department attached one of its trucks to the dangling vehicle to keep it from falling to the ground.
